Services For You
Wills, Trust & Probate
At Larcomes we have an expert team of Private Client Solicitors to advise you. Our services include:
- Will Drafting – A Will is a legal document that sets out actions that you require to happen when you die including how you wish your assets to be distributed.
- Estate and Inheritance Planning – This is the pro-active planning of your estate and making arrangement to protect your assets in the event of your death.
- Probate – This is the process that occurs after you die and involves the auctioning of your wishes contained in your Will
The making of a Will is a vital step for everyone, however, effective estate planning, in advance of your death will also ensure your assets are effectively managed during your lifetime. At Larcomes we have an experience team of Wills, Probate and Estate Planning Solicitors ready to give clear and pragmatic advice to protect you and your loved ones.
Planning for what happens after you die is not always at the forefront of your mind, but it is important to ensure that your affairs are properly in order for your loved ones.
Why is it important to have a Will?
Having a Will in place protects your assets after you die and ensures they are distributed in the way you require. Not having a Will in place that reflects your requirements will put your assets at risk and can lead to problems for your family and loved ones.
Whilst most people understand what a ‘Will’ is, too many people die without a Will which means their assets may not be protected and distributed appropriately. To avoid this from happening preparing a Will is essential.
Our private client specialists can give you accessible, cost effective and expert legal advice. To discuss drafting your first Will, or to update an existing Will call, our Wills and Probate team on 023 9244 8100 to make an enquiry.
Our experienced Wills and Probate Solicitors will work with you to assess your individual needs and guide you through the best possible estate and inheritance planning solution for you and your family. We also have the expertise to deal with high value assets including issues such as inheritance tax and trusts.
